"Lady Teresa” - Producer, Singer and Songwriter
I sing because I am happy. I sing because He has been good to me, and I am led to testify about His goodness.
For the outstanding professional gospel vocalist Lady Teresa, singing has been a lifelong endeavor. Singing and ministering in song to God’s people for over 40 years, she has faced many obstacles but nothing has separated her from continuing to lift up the name of Jesus. She is a firm believer that through Christ, all things are possible. Releasing her first solo album in 1998 entitled “He Lives in Me” was only the beginning of what God had in store for her. In 2014, she released her sophomore album entitled Inseparable Love.”
Teresa started singing at the age of 6 alongside her father, Ozie Bailey and the Bailey Family Choir. Currently she is a member of the New Grove Baptist Church in Winterville, GA where Bishop Dr. James Washington, Jr. serves as Senior Pastor. She serves her church faithfully as the Adult Sunday School teacher, Praise Team leader, founder and mentor for the teen group “Ladies in Waiting.” She is a member and lead vocalist with the Atlanta Chapter of the Gospel Music Workshop of America Choir. She volunteers in the community with various health awareness events.
Teresa is a graduate of Georgia Southern University where she received a Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing. She has been a nurse for over 25 years. God has blessed her with three lovely children - Adrian, Amber, and Ashton. Family is very important in her life and she enjoy spending time with loved ones and friends. Every day she gains more wisdom, passion and gratitude in her walk with Christ and encourages other believers and non-believers to do the same.
